Although the silhouette is occasionally regarded in our profession as a somewhat superficial photographic device, I think the technique can still be a viable tool in the photojournalist's toolbox. I've always been drawn to the graphic nature of these images, and I'm still unable to pass them up when offered the opportunity. I think it's the ambiguous nature of the images that I find intruiging. It's ok sometimes when photographs allow room for the viewer's interpretations to factor in. I came across this scene returning from an assignment this week, and like a moth to a flame, I was unable to keep myself from making a picture. Check out the Into the Light gallery of this website for a few other renditions of the approach.
